Chef Dan











Dan has cooked Thai cuisine professionally at some of London’s best Thai restaurants for nearly a decade, helping to achieve Michelin Bib Gourmands year after year. He has left the hustle and bustle of city restaurant life becoming a private chef based in Kent to raise his young family and to spread his love of Thai cuisine across London & the home counties. Dan has worked in professional kitchens since he was a teenager, washing dishes at first and then working his way up the ranks. His career has taken him across a range of kitchens and cuisines including British gastro pubs, Belgian bistros, Italian delis, vegetarian restaurants, and more. He fell in love with Thai cuisine when he began working at the Begging Bowl in Peckham. He spent two years training in the complexities and wonders of Thai food, becoming Junior Sous Chef at the end of the first year year. After moving on from the Begging Bowl, he became second in command and a crucial member of the team that bought about Farang in Highbury, where he spent seven years as Senior Sous Chef. Cooking funded him through a Bachelor’s degree in History and International Relations, and later a Master’s degree in Modern History. He holds a current Level 3 Food Hygiene certificate in Food Safety, Supervising, and Manufacturing.
